Since 2006, Mike Kuzo had a “bad” knee. Afraid of having surgery and exhausting all non-operative treatments, he suffered in pain until he could no longer walk. At 73, Kuzo decided it was time to do something.
Twenty years into his 50-year career as a tile layer, Kuzo, a Jim Thorpe resident, decided to finally wear knee pads. Thirty years later, the wear and tear on his knees had taken their toll, making the fearful decision to seek medical attention for him. “I’m not going to lie, I tried everything else and nothing worked,” says Kuzo.
